Congratulations To Me - Tue, 10/15/13 3:27 PM
In honor of me, I presume, today, Oct. 15, is National Grouch Day. Speaking as a very grouchy curmudgeon I can only say that I am gratified that this day has finally come. But why in hell did it take so long?.

You're just jealous because there's no National Bitch Day.

What type of gift does one send for either of those two very special holidays?

Well, for the one they haven't set yet there's always the Wicked Witch of The West Mask, also known as the Margaret Hamilton Forever Mask. For my day just send money.

For him, Chef Boyardee ravioli.  For me, fois gras, preferably duck.  Oh, and a nice brioche.

On the surface, there appears to be an inequality in the selections....Chef Boyardee is a prized commodity!

To celebrate, go to Five Guys and ask for a medium rare burger.  Then grouch about the fact that they won't fry one for you!

No No No!  Being a "former' grouch, you are not entitled to celebrate.

Oh come on, everyone knows  based on  this year's "Oz The Great and Powerful" that The Wicked Witch of the West was Mila Kunis way before she turned into Margaret Hamilton

I can't imagine, not in a lifetime, that you would turn into a "Fieldthistle" clone, but you met Lisa, and the rest is history. Congrats anyhow, on being the BIGGEST Grouch, of the early 21st century!
lleechef, the miracle worker!

I think if you doubters would check with lleechef you'd find that the only thing that's changed is the amount of non-brown hair in my beard.

Oh yes! me too Lisa! I usually only indulge in fois gras once or twice around the holidays but if someone gives me a gift of it, I would be very grateful!!

Knowing in advance I'm going to pay for asking, who -- or what -- is Mila Kunis?

Funny! I called you a Grinch a couple of years back-sorry I got it wrong. I grew up with a curmudgeon-my Dad. In my estimation, you are 2nd best at it!
Believe me-Lisa and I are working on a National Bitch Day-Bob says EVERDAY is National Bitch Day! You two would get along famously...

Well, now that I've seen a photo of this Mila Kunis I think I'll stick with Margaret Hamilton. Maybe Billie Burke, who played Glinda, the Good Witch of the North.

Interestingly enough, Margaret Hamilton was only 7 years older than Mila was,  when they played the same role yet Ms. Hamilton looked old enough to be Mila's grandmother.

Anyone for some Maxwell House?
 
Michael, perhaps next year you can celebrate with a trip to Readlyn, Iowa.

Now that would make for a great road trip.

I am seriously considering extending "Grouchy Day(s)" to include the entire Halloween Marketing period. Not even worth a "BAH HUMBUG" !!

Now just a darned minute. I'm looking forward to the four little kids down the road stopping by on the 31st to show us their costumes (made by their mother) and collect enough candy from this one stop to give them each a lifetime of cavities.

Oh he's still plenty grouchy and creepy and mean.  They come here because I'm the nice lady with the kitty, the candy and the popsicles.  I also know all their names!  They didn't come over last year.  Maybe this year they will if I tell them the grouch is locked in the basement.
